Red Daylilies In Bloom

My Red daylilies have bloomed as of last week. Some years they are the last to bloom, other years, my Stargazer Lilies are the last to bloom. This year, they are second to last.

80th Street Tunnel

The tunnel under 80th Street in Cottage Grove is one of my favorite walking paths in my neighborhood. Once through the tunnel, the path leads through the valley of homes, and to the end of this path. Mainly this area is to collect the rainfall. Behind me, there are multiple ways you can walk, which is why we like going this way.

The Royal Club


I had a sore shoulder to begin the work week, but I left work early Friday to play18 holes at The Royal Club in Lake Elmo with my local group of friends. On the 8th hole, I tweaked my shoulder, then played the 9th in pain. So I decided to start taking photos, instead of golfing the back nine. Sore shoulder and all, it was still much better than being at work.

Randy Houser Stole The Show

Randy Houser was the surprise performance of the evening for me. They opened before Alabama took the stage and my oh my, they were outstanding! Soulful voice, bluesy, country, powerful. My wife and I love the performance. The crowd at one point was chanting, Randy! Randy! Randy! I believe I knew one of his songs, but definitely not his name. If you ever get a chance to see Randy Houser, don't hesitate, just go see him.

Lakefront Music Fest Crowd

One of the performing artist on the night said there was over 18,000 people in attendance. This crowd shot is a small portion of the people. It's essentially one side of the grounds and doesn't include the people near the stage, nor the center or other side.

Alabama At Lakefront Music Fest

They were a fill in for Toby Keith due to health reasons, but Alabama put on a great show for their 50th Anniversary Tour. Their age is certainly showing for the legacy members. Having never seen Alabama before, it was certainly memorable.

Sam Hunt Performs At Treasure Island

My wife and I spent the weekend at a couple of different concerts. First up was country singer, Sam Hunt. He appeared at Treasure Island in Welch, MN this past Friday. Sam is one of my wife's favorite country artist, so I surprised her by getting tickets for us. The show was very entertaining and the crowd was certainly into it as well.

The Roof, The Roof, The Roof Is On Fire

How could anyone pass up this rooftop advertisement? When you look to the left, the arrow points to a door, next to a parking garage. So a bit strange at first glance however, seven or eight flights up the stairwell and you've made it to the top.
